Ciren Edged Out In High Scoring Game Against Cheltenham

Cheltenham brought a youthful and very talented side to the Corinium last night but also included the experienced Shane Duff at centre back, coming back from injury, and triallist former Swindon Town full back, Andy Nicholas.

The match was thoroughly entertaining throughout and peppered with several really high quality goals, and Adi Viveash will have been pleased with how his team competed throughout the match.

Shortly after Cheltenham had gone ahead with a fine goal from Lewis Fathers, Julian Alsop scored with a powerful header from a pinpoint Steve Davies cross. However, Cheltenham quickly restored their lead a minute later with a superb finish from the impressive Dean Maynard.

Just before half-time, Marley Watkins was upended in the penalty area by Harry Etheridge and took the spot kick himself to give Cheltenham a 3-1 half time lead.

Young Adam Mahdi, on loan from Bristol Rovers, was having an impressive game for Ciren on the left wing and capped his display with a curled free kick into the right hand corner of the net after Matt Williams had been tripped just outside the penalty area.

Cheltenham then restored their two goal lead with a great long range strike from Josh Emery before, in the final minute, Steve Robertson, on in place of Julian Alsop, completed the scoring by sidefooting the ball into the net after Adam Heath had shown a good turn of speed before putting in an accurate low cross.
